I am working on Windows 10 64 bit. Installed GDAL 3.3.1-1 via OSGEO4W setup file which according to the tutorial available here, Gdal installation should be done via pip install GDAL‑3.3.1‑pp37‑pypy37_pp73‑win_amd64.whl.

I downloaded the .whl file from Laboratory of Fluorescence Dynamics however, I am getting the error message that the .whl file is not a supported wheel on this platform.

Initially, I thought Python 2.7 was causing the problem, cleaned start the installation on a new machine with no Python at all, started over with the Geonode configuration process and still getting the same error, also did upgrade pip.

  • Check 'pip install wheel' and see if it helps.

cp39 stand for Python version installed on my PC. I am using the latest Python 3.9, so GDAL-3.3.1-cp39-cp39-win_amd64.whl should be downloaded. And then the GDAL was successfully installed.
